An Important Step

By a 219-212 vote, the US House passed the Senate's deeply imperfect but ameliorative health care reform bill. Typical of the journalism we get from corporate media, the graphic above (click to embiggen) arrives after the bill has become law -- after, that is, the long period of time during which large numbers of Americans demonstrated confusion and misunderstanding about the bill's impact -- but provides some useful information nonetheless.

Like the health care reform bill itself, the graphic is late and incomplete, but it's still an improvement. This is a positive change. More of the same will be needed.
